JL Fisher Open House 2011

Just a reminder that the JL Fisher Open House this year is on Saturday, May 14 from 9:30AM til 4:00PM. Frank and the people at Fisher always pull out all the stops to have a great day and the beauty is, it's mainly a day for Dolly Grips. We don't get many so please come out and meet your fellow Dolly Grips for beer and bar-b-cue. There will be many returning vendors as well as a discussion featuring several ASC and SOC members and Dolly Grips. I'm going to try and make it (unfortunately, it always falls on the weekend closest to my daughter's birthday) and hope to see many of you there. For directions and info you can go to jlfisher.com and click on the "general information" tab at the top for the address and phone number.
  On the home front, I'm sorry about the lack of posts. I finally got my internet troubles straightened out and then promptly smashed the screen of my phone in the LAX parking lot. We also started the week out in a split and are now into full blown nights. Add to that a crying baby and a tired wife and that doesn't leave much time for discussions about camera offsets  or dolly track. But, sooner or later the noose will loosen and I'll have a little more time to devote to Dollygrippery. Please ask any questions or make any comments you might have in the message forum to the right or by email. I still read the thing, I just don't have time to post on it. Thanks D.

PS- I thought you guys might like to see the custom leather dolly seat my Key Grip and I had made for our camera operator. It's a beauty.
